Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play Mask Collection

Here is the collection of the masks I oversaw the creation of during our production of Mr. Burns: A Post Electric Play. I am including the original designer renderings, to show what the designer originally wanted vs. the end result. These masks were made from Toilet Paper Mache Clay. I made sculpted 5 of the masks, and oversaw the sculpting and creation of the rest. Painted all of them myself with dry-brushing technique. Goal was to make them look primitive and made from materials that could not be used with electricity. Please check out my Mask-making page to see how I made these masks by Clicking this button.
